Why Choose Climate Works for Duct Cleaning Services in Markham?

Clean Air Icon

Clean air is an essential requirement in any space, be it at home or any type of public location.

Unfortunately, we cannot control the quality of air that we breathe outside, whether it is at the workplace, in malls, public transit systems, cinema theatres, or restaurants … you get the drift. Thankfully though, we certainly can ensure that the air we breathe at home – where we spend the majority of our time – is clean and free of dust and other harmful bacteria.

Surprisingly, though, most of us take this necessity for granted, assuming that the air circulating in our homes is pure by default and doesn’t warrant any action on our part.

For this reason, many homeowners in Canada do not opt for air duct cleaning or even dryer vent cleaning on a regular basis or worse, ever. There are a number of benefits to air duct cleaning services.

Let’s look at the many ways HVAC duct cleaning can positively impact the air you breathe.

Two Primary Duct Cleaning Benefits

Health – Air ducts that are not regularly cleared out serve as hot breeding grounds for not only dust particles but also several other invisible but equally damaging elements such as pollen, bacteria, lint, and dust mites.

If you have pets at home, add pet dander to this growing list. Both children and adults are vulnerable to all these noxious elements floating in the air. Opting for duct cleaning in Markham or wherever you live can help protect you and your family from the negative health consequences of breathing impure air.

Energy Efficiency – Besides health reasons, air duct cleaning in Markham is also beneficial in terms of the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system. Well-maintained ducts are free of dust particulates and operate at higher energy efficiency, helping reduce your energy bills.

Your HVAC system consists of several components through which the air needs to circulate as a part of the regular heating or cooling process.

Over time, dust particles begin to accumulate on these components, slowing them down and hampering their performance. Cleaning helps clear the buildup of dust particles and other matter that tend to collect on the components of the HVAC system, ensuring that it’s running at its maximum energy efficiency.

Overall, it’s safe to say that air duct cleaning not only promotes a healthy and safe environment for you and your family but also enables a comfortable home temperature coupled with minimum energy utilization.

Moreover, clean air brings other positive health outcomes such as keeping bacterial infections, allergic colds, coughs, asthma, fever, headaches, and other ailments at bay.

What are the Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning?

Safety – On the surface, it may seem to be an unlikely association but if you don’t clean your dryer vent regularly, it can increase the risk of fires.

You’d be surprised to know that while some lint gets collected on the lint trap, much of it escapes the trap, finding its way to the ductwork, where it eventually builds up. As it clogs the vent, it poses a fire hazard.

Regular dryer vent cleaning in Markham helps prevent the risk of dryer fires as it minimizes the possibility of lint or other debris from collecting.

Efficiency – As dryer vents accumulate dust and lint, they get clogged. This increases the stain on your machine and the amount of build up on your air filter.

Clogged dryer vents can reduce the life of your dryer and require more energy to perform the same task.

Want to lower your energy bills? Opt for dryer vent or duct cleaning more frequently and keep your dryer working at optimal efficiency.

Higher efficiency would also reduce the amount of time it takes to dry your clothes. Enjoy both time and cost efficiencies by keeping your dryer vent clean!

Durability – A nicely cleaned dryer vent reduces the amount of work your dryer has to perform. It not only reduces the energy consumed for drying but also reduces the strain on its parts and components.

On the other hand, an unclean dryer vent can cost you the life of your machine with increased wear and tear. To enjoy long-lasting durability, get your dryer vent cleaned and also save the money that you’d have to spend on buying a new dryer more often.

To summarize, dryer vent duct cleaning will not only lead to shorter drying times but also enhance safety for your family, energy efficiency, and cost savings.

It makes economic sense to spend a small amount on professional dryer vent cleaning than on costly repairs from fire damage, higher energy consumption, or even new equipment.

More About Air Duct Cleanings

While the air ducts carry that warm and cool air to us, helping us stay comfortable no matter the season, they also carry particles, dust and other things that can be harmful to our health. A time when you really want to have the air ducts cleaned is following renovations.

Dust and dander can cause serious problems for anyone who has breathing issues in the home. Every time the furnace comes on, it will be blowing dust and dander through the air, aggravating the lungs of anyone who has asthma or allergies, for example.

Duct cleaning services are even more important if you believe you have mould in your ducts. Mold spores can begin to float about your home when you have the air conditioning or furnace on. This can lead to respiratory health issues.

If you believe vermin to be present in your air ducts, having the ducts cleaned can eliminate that problem as well.

Climate Works is NACDA certified and your Markham Duct Cleaning Experts.

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that air ducts be cleaned as needed – every few years at least. Since it takes time for dust and particles to accumulate in your air ducts, we recommend an air duct cleaning every five to seven years.

If you’re unsure you need an air duct cleaning, we recommend an inspection to check if you need to have your ducts cleaned.

One of the common calls we receive is from community members requesting dryer duct cleaning in Ontario due to allergies.

Many of these individuals and families, unfortunately, suffer from seasonal allergies, which we have found, depending on the time of year, is an impetus for researching home allergy solutions and consequently discovering the importance of duct cleaning in Markham. 

In our region of Canada, the months April and May are often the time when tree pollen counts are at their highest, leading to more issues for those who suffer from tree allergies, such as oak, mulberry, elm, box-elder, cedar, maple, ash, alder or birch.

We then receive more calls for duct cleaning in the Markham area when June and July roll around.

These calls are often from members of the community recognizing it is time to clean their ducts because the grass pollens are high in the air and have started to aggravate their allergies. In these cases, the most common grass pollens or allergy culprits are Bermuda, Kentucky bluegrass, orchard, fescue or sweet vernal. 

It is not until midsummer that we begin to see the dreaded mould blooms that haunt so many allergy sufferers.

These moulds grow both indoors and outdoors, but it is when these moulds grow indoors that it is important to invest in the duct and dryer vent cleaning in Markham.

Unfortunately, the spores produced by mould are known to aggravate asthma symptoms. And to end our allergy season in this region, the end of summer sees ragweed acting as a chief allergy culprit and motivating factor for customers reaching out to us for the best duct cleaning prices in Markham.

Our powerful duct cleaning equipment cleans dust, debris, and moisture from the entire air duct conveyance system in your home, leaving nothing but clean air so you can breathe easy.

Our cleaning process not only prevents dust and debris from entering the air around your home but it also helps to prolong the life of your heating and cooling system

We pay special attention to vents located near your entrances to your home, and in bathrooms, bedrooms, and kitchens.

Microbial contaminants such as bread molds, mildews, and soil fungi, which can be invisible to the naked eye, can also be removed during duct cleaning when utilizing our professional sanitizing equipment and procedures.

How to Clean Heating Ducts: Our 9 Step Process

Climate Works uses a 9 Step Process to ensure your ducts are clean, you are satisfied with the service, and you breathe healthy air.
Here it is:

1.Introductions & Setup: Meet your expert technician and let know of any issues with your HVAC system, or areas where they should be ESPECIALLY careful.

Depending on the type of home you live in, we will either use our HyperVac Truck-Mounted Vaccum System or bring in a Portable Abatement Unit. The duct cleaning technician will then run an 8″ vacuum hose from the truck (or portable unit) to the ductwork in your furnace room.

The technician will then cover all of the vents in your home to produce the maximum amount of suction when it comes time to clean each supply vent. The covers ensure dust stays out of the interior of your home while we clean the system.  

2. Turn on the Vacuum: Your technician will then cut a hole in the ductwork (Don’t worry! We will repair it!), take before pictures (with only your permission), then they will secure the vacuum hose to the main supply duct.

A high-pressure airline is run to a supply vent on the upper-level of your home. The technician will then power on the truck-mounted vacuum and compressor. Operating the equipment is loud at times, but don’t worry! It is outside, and you will barely even hear it. 

3. Push Dirt from Supply Vents to the Main Supply Duct: The duct cleaning technician will travel to each of your supply vents with a tool we call a “push-whip.” A push-whip consists of several open-ended rubber tubes and is attached to the end of a high-pressure airline.

The whip is inserted into a vent. When the technician opens the airline valve, air rushes out of each of the multiple open-ended rubber tubes, whipping them around your ductwork. This action loosens up any existing dust, dirt, and mould spores, and forces them into the main-supply vent.

4. Clean the Main Supply Duct: After all the supply vents are clean, the technician will proceed back to your furnace room. He will switch from a push-whip to a pull-whip.

A pull-whip is much the same as a push-whip except the rubber tubes are pointing rearwards, allowing for the technician to pull dirt back towards the vacuum hose connection. All the dust from your ductwork is sucked through the vacuum hose and into a truck-mounted HEPA vacuum bag.

The technician then detaches the hose from the main air supply duct and takes pictures of the interior of the ductwork to ensure visual cleanliness.

5. Clean the Air Return Vents: The technician will cut another small hole in your main return duct and take before pictures of the duct’s interior. The vacuum hose is then connected to the main return duct. The same process, as described in Step 3, is repeated, but on the air returns.

Commonly, return air runs are open spaces located in-between studs in your wall. If you hear a strange sound coming from inside your wall, don’t be alarmed! The noise is just the whip doing its job.

6. Clean the Main Return: The same process using the pull-whip as described in Step 4 is performed but within the main return duct. The technician then detaches the hose from the main supply duct and takes pictures of the interior of the ductwork to ensure visual cleanliness.

7. Air Handler and Evaporator Coil Cleaning: Now that your duct work is thoroughly inspected and visually clean, the technician will open your furnace door. The technician will inspect your filter, and vacuum out any remaining debris within your air handler unit or sitting atop your coil.

8. System Sanitization: The technician will then go back to each supply and return vent in your home and proceed to sanitize your ductwork. He will then sanitize both the main supply air and return air ducts. 

Our system sanitization process removes any bacteria, mould spores, and or unwanted odours that may have been present in your ductwork.

**At Climate Works, we only use an all-natural sanitizer called Benefect Disinfectant. We use this very product to sanitize ductwork that leads to surgical rooms in hospitals. It is 100% safe, trusted and effective.**

9. Clean-Up and Goodbyes: The technician will repair any holes that were cut in your ductwork and seal the patches airtight. All equipment is returned to our truck.

The technician will then perform a walk-through to ensure no tools, material or mess were left behind. You will then be shown the before, and after photos of your ductwork, so you know for sure the job was done right.  

If you’re serious about your health and your families health, you won’t want to wait much longer for a duct cleaning in Markham. Learn more about how dryer vent and air duct cleaning can benefit you today by giving us a call!
